Sometimes other people don't need to see what you are messaging.

rumr, released on March 25, is a real-time anonymous messaging app and service. Out for iOS and Android devices, rumr allows users to have private, anonymous conversations with family and friends.

This is a new way to message. Express what you want, with privacy.

Find your friends on rumr through your address book or by using social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Go into a chat, and the chat creator can add and remove users from the said chat.

“We believe that anonymity is the new frontier for messaging, creating an exciting alternative for the always-connected person to share their innermost thoughts with friends without being identified,” explains James Jerlecki, CEO and co-founder of rumr. “With rumr you spend less time thinking about how to perfectly craft the message you want to send and just share exactly what’s on your mind.”

rumr was developed by Jerlecki, Collin Vance and Andrew Chae, a Los Angeles-based company that raised a seed round from Khosla Ventures (Ben Ling), Google Ventures (MG Siegler), Greycroft Partners (Paul Bricault), and angel investors Paige Craig and Scott Lehman, CEO textPlus.

It's a strong team and rumr is positioned for success.

“The rumr team has a strong track record in mobile messaging,” said Ben Ling, investment partner at Khosla Ventures. “We look forward to helping the rumr team build something special.”

The team at rumr had previously worked together at textPlus.

It's out now, and rumr is free app and now available from the iTunes App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/ app/rumr-anonymous-messaging/ id794154239?ls=1&mt=8 and on Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/ apps/details?id=com.rumr.
